The Mohawk Trail crosses the Hoosac mountain range, connecting towns in the western part of the state with the Connecticut River Valley. Renowned for its scenic vistas, the Mohawk Trail became a popular route for travelers seeking out "natural" beauty at the turn of the 20th century. Ironically, the industrial landscape many Americans sought to escape from, produced the technology that enabled these same travelers to drive along the Mohawk Trail. The numbers of tourists increased as technological advances made automobiles more dependable and affordable to millions of Americans.
